For the 5th Birthday party of Marwin, the theme chosen was Minions from he movie of Despicable me. I find this theme very fun for kids, as the minions are very funny characters and you can do so many creative ideas with this theme.
In this post I would like to share with you the steps to do some Minions cupcakes. I hope you enjoy them.
Step 1: Bake some cupcakes with the flavour of your choice. I made banana cupcakes and used the banana cake recipe shared on my previous post here.
Step 2: Get fondant in blue, yellow, white, black and grey. Make sure you get the tones of the real minions, if you cannot find those tones in the store, such as in my case, you can add food color to the fondant to match the desired tones. I recommend to use food color in paste or gel and not liquid. I got a very good one at Wilton, you can find it here.
Step 3: Collect some cookie cutters or anything in a circle shape of the size of the cupcakes and start cutting some circles in blue and yellow. Mix half a yellow circle with half a blue circle as seen below to create the body of the minions.
Step 4: Use the tap of a bottle or anything in a small circle size to cut white fondant circles to create the eyes of the minions. Cut white sticks to create the name tags on the uniforms of the minions.
Step 5: With the same bottle tap cut grew circles and with a smaller tap or a ring cut an even smaller circle in the middle of the first one. You want to create a ring to do the glasses of the minions.
Step 8: Prepare some ice cream frosting (you can find the recipe on my previous post here) and place it on top of the cupcakes.
